Chvrches have shared a new remix of their single “How Not To Drown” featuring the song’s featured artist The Cure’s frontman Robert Smith. The remix, is the best possible compliment to the original version of the song that is based on the concept of staying conscious when you drown.
‘How Not To Drown’ was released last month alongside the announcement of CHVRCHES’ forthcoming fourth studio album, Screen Violence, due out August 27 via Glassnote (US) and EMI Records (UK). The single was premiered via Zane Lowe who interviewed the band for their first ever interview with Smith ahead of the release of the official video, featuring both CHVRCHES and Robert Smith, with its claustrophobic, film-noir imagery a continuation of the aesthetic presented with the album’s debut single ‘He Said She Said’.
The Scotish trio’s new album Screen Violence, was Recorded almost entirely remotely between Los Angeles and Glasgow, members Lauren Mayberry, Martin Doherty and Iain Cook self-produced and mixed the album via video calls and audio sharing programs.
Screen Violence was originally conceived as a name for the band. A decade later, and during a pandemic when the reality of screen violence has never been more pertinent, struggling to make the people you love feel more than the characters on a TV show, and experiencing a world of trauma as if it were another, CHVRCHES revived the term for their forthcoming album title. Narrating the theme of screen violence in three main forms – on screen, by screens and through screens – the album touches on feelings of loneliness, disillusionment, fear, heartbreak and regret.
